Private Training

Private lessons are available to help resolve challenging behaviors, work on specific skills, and get 1-on-1 personal attention to achieve goals. My private lessons are tailored to accommodate dogs of all ages and skill levels. During the lessons I will work with you to address any specific training challenges, concerns, or goals. The location of private training sessions will be at your house, a local park, or at my home in Stanwood depending on your needs.
